Contrary to popular belief, diplomas are not awarded during the graduation ceremony. Diplomas are only awarded once a student has completed their degree. A degree audit is completed by the department of the degree being sought. If the student has completed all requirements to receive the degree, they will list the student as "graduated". An additional audit is then completed by the graduation team and the degree is posted to their transcript.

Diplomas are distributed approximately one month after the traditional semester ends. 

The one-time graduation fee assessed to students covers the cost of the diploma and postage, degree processing, degree audit and verification from each department and the Registrar’s Office.  All graduates must pay the fee, regardless of attendance at the ceremony.
